Did you weigh the original hood, trunk and roof? I'm curious to see how much the weight savings is.

very good way to stiff the block up, yeah. No carbon for widebody? Did you do the job with the carbon by yourself, or is this bought from a company?
will you modify the rear doors too? or will you use the cap to vent coolers?

Happy manufacturing, regards, Kay
